Leadfarmer..........if you don't have nurseries local to you ( or you don't have nurseries you are happy with ) there is a thread started by Verdun last year ( ? ) entitled The Good Guys. Most are on line suppliers but obviously, depending on your location, you may find a Good Guy close to home.

Might be worth while checking out to see what's what

See original post

 Thanks, Id completely missed that thread, just had a look and theres some good recommendations in there. Heres a link to Verduns great thread which can be found in the Talkback section...

Just wondering where folk buy their plants from?

Seeing as I'm planning on turning much of my lawn over to planting areas, I'll be needing to order lots of new plants. Garden centres don't always have the specific plants that I want, and places like B&Q/Homebase have a very limited choice.

So which online suppliers or nurseries do folk recommend for buying plants?

He's only 9yrs old, so how he managed to get served with the cider I just don't know!

My Fathers Day present from my son, Geranium Blushing Turtle, Lavender Hidcote and two pots, from Dobbies garden centre. Oh, and some cider..

First went in 2009 and thought it was good, even bought a £1000 greenhouse whilst there. Went a couple of years later and it was really poor. Im now glad I didn't go this year, and I doubt I'll ever be going again until I hear its had a massive kick up the arse.

 Ha ha 

Im also using it as a guide for my planned pond. I was planning one in the corner of the garden but I'm now liking the idea of having a circular one in the centre of the garden, about the same size as the circular lawn patch. I'll be removing the remainder of the grass and turning it all to planting.

Im still having fun changing how I mow the lawn, today I've left a circle of longer grass, a ring of shorter grass around it, and then mowed everywhere else even shorter, with a mowed path running through it. Should look better in a few days as it was still wet when I cut it....

See original post

 It never flowers very well to be honest Lily Pily, maybe because its in a planter. Its east facing and only gets sun in the mornings?

Thanks Busy-Lizzie, Ive still got to find a permanent home for those potted oak tree saplings. Maybe when they are too big/heavy to move I will get around to trying to move them!!
